On Sunday night, the UK was treated to a spectacular display of the Northern Lights. Reports of sightings came from as far south as Cornwall, with many people taking to social media to share their awe-inspiring images.
The Northern Lights, also known as Aurora Borealis, are created by a solar flare erupting on the Sun. This sends charged particles towards Earth which interact with our atmosphere, resulting in the beautiful display of lights.
The display on Sunday night was particularly impressive, with many people saying it was one of the best they had ever seen. The lights were seen in a variety of colours, including green, blue and pink.
The good news is that more displays are expected in the coming nights, so if you missed out on Sunday night, there is still a chance to witness this incredible natural phenomenon.
To ensure you don’t miss out, it is best to keep an eye on the weather forecast and look for clear skies. The Northern Lights are usually visible between September and April, so if you’re lucky you might be able to spot them in the coming weeks.
The Northern Lights are a truly magical sight and one that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the next display and take the opportunity to witness this incredible natural phenomenon.
